Rianda House Senior Activity Center

Rianda House Senior Activity Center

What We Do:

Rianda House expanded in 2020, in response to COVID-19, from being a physical location into a senior center without walls. Our doors remain virtually wide open for all UpValley older adults, as we continue to help older adults find vital resources, keep their bodies moving, and fill their lives with purpose and joy.

We offer over 15 no-cost, weekly programs such as Tai Chi, memoir writing, gents discussion group, creative arts, and current events – all virtually via Zoom. We leverage our strong partnership with more than 22 local agencies to ensure older adults have easy access to specialized services, including memory screenings, caregiver support, insurance counseling, nutrition, medical transportation links, and classes for individuals with chronic illness. Rianda House also sends timely alerts during PSPS, the pandemic, and wildfires to keep older adults connected, prepared, and safe in uncertain times. Together with our partners, we bring services UpValley that would not otherwise be available.

Other Ways to Help:

Volunteer opportunities:

  • Ambassadors
  • Lecturers/Presenters: artists, historians, foodies, organizers, and technology wizzes
  • Class calendar distributors

Donations needed:

  • Laptops for providing virtual programing
  • Video cameras for filming virtual classes and presentations
  • Studio setup for filming virtual classes and presentations
  • Generator to power the center through public safety power shutoffs


I’m grateful to Rianda House for the many no-cost opportunities to be entertained, educated, uplifted, included, creative, active, informed, needed, nourished, and appreciated!
